FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Shamrock Rovers and St. Patrick's Athletic.

Full-time at Tallaght Stadium as Shamrock Rovers and St Patrick's Athletic play out a one-all draw.. Benson looked to have won it for the Saints late on but Aaron Greene rescued a point for the Hoops late on after heading home Sean Hoare's cross.. Honours even, and in truth, it was probably a fair result in the end. Macdara Ferris will have his report online shortly! 

90' + 4'

Corner Kick

Daniel Mandroiu (Shamrock Rovers) takes a corner-kick.

Liam Scales heads wide, and that is probably that...

Just two minutes of added time remain... Will we have a late, late winner?? 

90'

WHAT A FEW MINUTES! 

Robbie Benson gives the Saints the lead in the 88th minute after deceiving ALan Mannus at the near post - but Aaron Greene equalises moments later after heading home a great Sean Hoare cross! Four minutes of added time remain!

84'

Substitution

Sam Bone (in) - Paddy Barrett (out) (St. Patrick's Athletic).

84'

Rovers have conceded just the one goal in their last 11 league matches. They are unbeaten in the league since September 2019. Since then they have avoided defeat in 22 consecutive Premier Division games (18 wins and four draws). 

81'

JAROS SAVES AGAIN!

St Pats keeper Jaros saves well again from a deflected Graham Burke effort on goal.. The ball goes out for a corner that comes to nothing but the on-loan Liverpool has shown a fair bit about himself this evening... 

80'

Rovers haven’t lost a league game in Tallaght to the Saints since 18 March 2016 – a 2-0 win for the Saints secured thanks to goals from Billy Dennehy and Christy Fagan.

77'

St Patrick's Athletic have looked a really solid side this evening - if O'Donnell can get the goals flowing this year they may have a chance of silverware this term..

74'

Free Kick

Graham Burke (Shamrock Rovers) takes a free-kick.

Vitsolav Jaros is forced into a good save from Burke...

72'

Liam Scales has now move into centre-back rather than left wing-back - but as I type, Mandroiu shoots straight at the Pats on loan Liverpool goalkeeper who pushes the ball away from danger... 

71'

Substitution

Sean Kavanagh (in) - Joey O'Brien (out) (Shamrock Rovers).

70'

Substitution

Dylan Watts (in) - Ronan Finn (out) (Shamrock Rovers).

69'

Dylan Watts is getting ready to come on for the Hoops it seems... 

66'

CHANCE FOR ROVERS! 

Some good play from the hosts sees Daniel Mandroiu see his shot blocked off the line by Lee Desmond - if Mandroiu had taken his shot first time there he may have easily scored... Still scoreless

63'

Yellow Card

Shane Griffin (St. Patrick's Athletic) is booked.

63'

Half-chance for Rovers as Sean Gannon's cross finds Liam Scales at the back post - Scales puts the ball back into the mix but Paddy Barrett and Lee Desmond come out on top against Aaron Greene. 

62'

Free Kick

Sean Hoare (Shamrock Rovers) takes a free-kick.

59'

WHAT A SAVE! 

Alan Mannus saves well from a Matty Smith shot on goal. The ex-Waterford forward cut inside to see his effort sting the hands of Mannus who put the ball away from danger. Just seconds before. Paddy Barrett almost got caught napping on the ball with a Rovers forward lurking but the Hoops were unable to capitalise...

57'

Corner Kick

Robbie Benson (St. Patrick's Athletic) takes a corner-kick.

56'

Corner Kick

Chris Forrester (St. Patrick's Athletic) takes a corner-kick.

55'

Substitution

Aaron Greene (in) - Rory Gaffney (out) (Shamrock Rovers).

53'

Jason McClelland just about gets the better of his former UCD teammate Liam Scales as the Hoops give away a free-kick on the halfway line. There's not an awful lot to report on in this half so far... 

49'

Some good play from Shamrock Rovers finds Graham Burke just outside the penalty area but the Hoops forward can only shoot over the St Patrick's Athletic crossbar. Still scoreless at Tallaght Stadium....

17'

Game has gotten a bit scrappy in the last couple minutes

14'

Shamrock Rovers really haven't clicked into this game yet. Pats seem to be putting the home team under a lot more pressure when Rovers are on the ball.
